Ok bees, this is something I MUST tell you all about…
I have had the most horrendous time getting rid of the hair down there. I’ve shaved, waxed, etc. Always got irritation and always had pain. Plus, it never got really “clean.”
Then my husband told me to use a little product he likes to use. Its very strange I know (because like it says on the container, its formulated for black men) but I swear that it worked like magic!!!! I put the powder and some water together till it make it a thick paste, put it on the area and after about 5 minutes I hoped in the shower. I gently rubbed and the hair just came off. Its been three days, no irritation whatsoever and barely any growth. Thought Id suggest it 🙂
This is it…

@AlbanianBride27: I’m intrigued by this, but scared to google it at work lol. My Polish heritage makes hair removal a problem for me, so I would love to hear a little more about you experience/the product if you’re willing to share!

It really was so simple. Im telling you —-i have THEE most sensitive skin. I break out as soon as im stressed (broke out ON my wedding day) and even my legs burn when i shave them.
I have found that mens products work the best for me. The razor I use for my legs is a mens razor and I use hair conditioner as shaving cream.
Yes, HAIR CONDITIONER! 🙂 I tried every “sensitive” shave cream I could think of and often it was worse than ever. Soon as I used hair conditioner, no problem. Also, saves me money! VO5 and Suave work best for me.
This stuff is just perfect. The ONLY downside is it smells awful. Just open a window and deal with it. After you shower, you dont smell like it. The bathroom usually clears out after a few hours.

I’m very intrigued as well. I get terrible razor bumps from shaving and have very sensitive skin so no nair for me. I’ve never tried waxing it. I’m too scared! I cry every time I get my eyebrows waxed to I can’t imagine how the vag would be!! Too bad you can’t post before and after photos…
@MrsCarnival: hahaha I loled at “but scared to google it at work”

I’ve used this off and on for the past 5 years or so, never more than a few months at a time. The problem I have with it is that it doesn’t get hair below the skin at all and only lasts a couple days, same as shaving, and after a while of using it, it starts to cause irritation for me. I think it’s all the repeated rubbing you have to do to get the product and hair off, plus the repeated use of a dipilatory can assault your skin a little. And my thoughts are kind of…if I get the same results as shaving and eventually with the same sort of razor bumps…why bother mixing up a messy, smelly powder into a paste every couple of days? It does work well for the first few weeks or so for me. For reference, I’m very fair with coarse, black hair, so it’s possible others with finer hair may have better results than me.
The best results I’ve gotten other than with this product, and better for long-term use, are just from shaving with Neosporin instead of shave gel, which can also be a little messy but keeps the shave bumps well at bay. I’m now having laser hair removal done, which I’ve wanted to do forever, and I could not be more happy with the results.
ETA: For anyone who wants to give it a try, I just buy it at Rite Aid. It’s with the other shaving stuff, but in the men’s section.

This stuff may work wonders, but putting the equivalent of Nair on my junk sounds like a bad idea for me. Of course, I’m prone to UTIs, so putting anything out of the ordinary down there makes me a bit scared.
@anemonie: Interesting about Neosporin! I might have to try it.
Best ladyparts shaving cream I’ve ever used is Coochy shaving cream. Might have to hide it when guests come over (what a name!), but I rarely had bumps when using it. It’s expensive, so I’ve been trying other creams/gels, but I will be going back! I also use men’s aftershave to help ease bumps. 🙂

With any product, it works for some well and not for others.
the thing with this product if you try is NOT TO RUB HARD!!! You have to be gently with yourself. I dont mind that its like shaving because I dont plan on using it very often.
My husband uses it once a month, he never has problems.
as for getting under the skin, nothing does that unless you do the laser or wax.

I’m glad I’m not the only men’s razor and hair conditioner gal as well! Men’s razors are waaay better than women’s razors, and I REFUSE to pay twice the price for half the razors just because they’re in pastel colours!

@LurkerBee: Coochy is GREAT stuff isnt it! haha

I also use hair conditioner to shave it’s better than any other shave gel I have used. I also use Tend Skin which is for razor bumps, ingrown hair, and irritation. It comes in a royal blue bottle and sold at pharmacies, target, walmart. It will most likely be by the mens aftershave stuff. It helps me with ingrown hair by reducing it and the irritation after shaving. It stings but does work!

@O.My.Heart: Me Too!! I have always found that it works the best!
